I first bought this album in 1980 and , together with Selfportrait Vol II, it remains one of my all time favourite albums. This music seems ageless, its totally unique and so contains none of the cliches that date other forms of music.And yet there are often elements that hark back to a pre-war Germanic folk music tradition, amongst other things.The low quality of the sound is simply due to the fact that these tracks were made by Roedelius at home, demos perhaps.But I found that after a while the rough edges actual add to the overall atmosphere of the pieces.If you are new to Roedelius then these two albums are undoubtedley the best place to start, and I would unhesitatingly recommed them.Don't be fooled by the notion that "genres" or "catagories" tell you anything meaningfull about this or any other music.I have introduced all sorts of people to enjoying Roedelius who wouldn't go anywhere near something labelled "Krautrock". This is music for everyone.
